Setting out curved walls

Curved walls don’t have the same flexibility as standard straight walls. For example you can’t profile curved walls. One property that curved wall do have, is a “Center Mark Visible” Graphics Type property (straight wall don’t need this feature). Typically this is turned off, and can be turned on after the wall has been drawn.

The Center Mark Visible turned on.

The Center Mark, as you would expect it, can be used to set out the wall center of radius.

What is surprising is; if you turn off the “Center Mark Visible” Graphics type property, the dimensions still remain. This great as it gives us full flexibility.
